Berkeley came into being as an expansion of the City of Denver. Homesteaders settled the land in 1863, and as the settlement grew, it came to be known as the Town of North Denver. The original homesteads were sold and merged to form Berkeley Farms, which gave the area its identity. The name changed to Berkeley in 1898, and the town was officially incorporated as a Denver neighborhood in 1902.
Driven by the opening of the Elitch Gardens in 1890, cultural activities played a significant role in Berkeley's development. The Elitch Theatre showed Denver's first moving pictures and drew top actors such as Grace Kelly, Lana Turner and Mickey Rooney to the stage. The Trocadero Ballroom brought further cultural refinement and entertainment power with performances by famous musicians such as Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman. The popularity of the Gardens drew people to the area, increased ridership on the Berkeley Motor trolley line and helped to encourage the development of the corridor.
Berkeley proudly continues its rich cultural tradition. First Friday Art Walk is a treasured monthly event and a must-see highlight for visitors. Stroll Tennyson Street for a market-style experience of art exhibits, live music, good food and retail delights.

City buses run along the neighborhood's border streets for trips in and out of the community. A short 10-minute trip via Federal Boulevard takes you to Sports Authority Field to see the Broncos.
